Zombieland: Double Tap is finally some much-loved zombie killer character from Zombieland back to the big screen. The sequel takes place a decade after the original, which is fitting considering it's being released almost ten years to the day compared to the first film. Fans of the 2009 cult classic are understandably excited in welcoming back Tallahassee, Columbus, Wichita, and Little Rock in Zombieland 2.
Since the events of the first movie, America has become overrun by zombies. The foursome has stuck together, growing into experts when it comes to all things involving the undead. A bit of tension affects the dynamic of the group, breaking them apart for a brief time, but the existence of highly-evolved "superzombies" will force them back together as they face their most daunting test to date.
Zombieland 2 features a number of familiar faces, including cameos from Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd as fictionalized versions of themselves. The sequel also introduces a few new characters to the apocalyptic world. Here's a breakdown of the cast and characters, and where you've probably seen the actors before.
Woody Harrelson as Tallahassee - After spending a decade slaying zombies, Tallahassee has become an expert in identifying and killing evolved forms of the dead. The no-nonsense Tallahassee remains as the self-proclaimed leader of the group but often underestimates his fellow comrades. While on the rescue mission to find Little Rock, Tallahassee encounters a new love interest. Harrelson has decades of acting credits under his belt. The Cheers actor has recently appeared in The Hunger Games series, War for the Planet of the Apes, and Solo: A Star Wars Story.
Jesse Eisenberg as Columbus - The official narrator of Zombieland has transformed into a hardened survivor in Zombieland 2, after spending so many years with a crippling sense of caution. Columbus still acts as the peacekeeper among the group but his feelings toward Wichita results in a need for some distance. Eisenberg is best known for his work in The Social Network, the Now You See Me movie series, and Lex Luthor in the DCEU.
Emma Stone as Wichita - Wichita, whose real name is Krista, leaves the group after fearing that she is too attached to Columbus. When her sister, Little Rock, goes off on her own, Wichita returns to Tallahassee and Columbus for help. The group then encounters a new set of survivors and a horde of "superzombies." Stone has appeared in a number of well-received films as of late, including La La Land, Battle of the Sexes, and The Favourite.
Abigail Breslin as Little Rock - Since she's sick of being treated as a child by the older members of the group, Little Rock decides to go off on her own. She meets a hippie named Berkeley and agrees to accompany him to Graceland. This causes the rest of the group to follow after her since they fear for her safety. Breslin's most notable roles include Little Miss Sunshine, My Sister's Keeper, and Scream Queens.
Rosario Dawson as Reno - Reno is a new survivor that the group encounters while on their search for Little Rock in Zombieland: Double Tap. She runs an Elvis-themed hotel and becomes a love interest for Tallahassee. Dawson is best known for her work in Sin City [and Death Proof.]
Zoey Deutch as Madison - After surviving alone for years inside Pinkberry, Madison meets Tallahassee, Columbus, and Wichita. She's a stereotypical "dumb blonde" and it baffles the group how she managed to survive this long. Deutch's past work includes Vampire Academy, Before I Fall, [and Set It Up.]
Luke Wilson as Albuquerque - Albuquerque is one half of a new duo and strongly resembles Tallahassee. He and his partner drive a monster truck. Wilson is well known for dozens of projects over the years, such as Old School, but he was most recently seen in Roadies, Room 104, and The Goldfinch.
Thomas Middleditch as Flagstaff - Flagstaff is Albuquerque's partner and his personality mirrors that of Columbus. He warns the group that a horde of evolved zombies is heading their way. Middleditch is best known for his work on Silicon Valley as well as films like The Final Girls, Replicas, and Godzilla: King of the Monsters.
Avan Jogia as Berkeley - After Little Rock meets Berkeley, he encourages her to accompany him on his travels to Babylon, a hippie commune. Most recently, Jogia appeared in Ghost Wars, Now Apocalypse, and Shaft.
